Will Still Get Your Name Wrong: Starbucks Employee Draws Gorgeous Cup Art for Lucky Customers

Starbucks Cup

Londoner Gabriel Nkweti Lafitte goes far beyond his duties as a Starbucks barista to make his customers smile, and it all begins with a paper cup. Decorating the chain’s green and white cups is nothing new, although it rarely turns out awesome. But Lafitte is different. He’s making stunning designs for customers that blow the rest away.

Using a paper cup as his canvas, the barista creates beautifully complex drawings for a select number of customers and particularly those “special individuals who exhibit some small kindness” inside Starbucks. The designs can take up to 40 hours to complete, clearly showing his extraordinary dedication to art and his customers.

Artist Transforms Coffee Cups into Whimsical Objects and Scenarios

Cuppaday

Before you throw that used coffee cup away, take some inspiration from Australian designer and architect, Paul Garbett. He turns seemingly useless paper cups into beautiful and adorable works of art.

Called “Cuppaday,” Garbett’s project is clearly only limited by his imagination. Often with the help of small figurines, he’s created everything from a cup-turned-venus-fly-trap to slices of salami. Garbett has also managed to construct a scene of protesters in front of a smoke factory and a shrine of ramen noodles, all starting with just a single paper coffee cup.

Chinese Pop Star Jay Chou Immortalized via Coffee Cup Rings

The artist statement on Shanghai-based Hong Yi’s website reads: “I love to create art. Not with the usual paintbrush and watercolour and pencils though – I like to grab whatever I can get hold of – rocks, ketchup, milk, salt, shirts – and turn them into art. It’s more fun that way!”

Case in point: Hong’s latest work, a portrait of Chinese pop star Jay Chou, is comprised entirely of coffee cup rings. The larger-than-life piece, which attempts to replicate the look and feel of a sepia-toned photograph, took the artist approximately 12 hours to complete.
